In the next fighting game (if it is one), just give me a free/sandbox mode where I can destroy cities without fighting other kaiju!

Cmon now is the time for another Godzilla game! Does Toho not have faith in the success of one? Right around the release of GvK was perfect. If it didn't happen yet I doubt it is gonna happen anytime soon which is a damn shame. It doesn't necessarily have to be a fighting game although that certainly could work as well. If we are focusing on the Monsterverse it'd probably be best to do something like that anyway.

Toho, I'm guessing, would gladly take a developer's money whether the game is good or not.

I think the issue is that Godzilla games have such a horrible reputation that in today's climate where everything has to be a AAA blockbuster franchise to get greenlit from most publishers, no one is willing to take the chance on shelling out money for the license then having the game bomb.

The solution, of course, is to make a good game.....but so many people have made so many stupid decisions where Godzilla games are concerned...it's amazing it's so hard to make a great game with the license.

Still sad the Pipeworks trilogy never got remastered it would be really cool if even just STE was remastered

We got a better chance of a new game than the Pipeworks trilogy getting remastered I figure.

Honestly with all the new incarnations and new kaiju in general coming into this franchise, a new game could have a seriously big roster. We have the MonsterVerse kaiju, Shin Godzilla, Godzilla Earth, Ultima, Salunga, along with all the classic kaiju who still haven't gotten a game appearance yet like Gorosaurus or Zilla.

Most likely....

But I'll still dream of WB games announcing a Monsterverse game. I feel like it's our best shot at a Godzilla game at this point.

Pretty much. Atari would have to go and get the rights again and pay to have the game ported over to new consoles etc and it doesn't look like they wanna spend the money. Best to start fresh.
Your misconceptions and fantasies along with your misguided sense of entitlement don't dictate my actions.

That's such a shame, but not surprising. Guess we'll have to rely on the fans again, what with STE Overhaul being worked on.

Their latest update video had Gojirex teasing a bigger roster than the original game when someone commented:

"We're getting a Godzilla Direct?!!!"

Gojirex: "Yep, we fully acknowledge that we're ripping off the Everyone is Here direct. Expect something like that ;)"

That's a bold statement to make, surely they don't mean EVERYONE....right? Cause that's a lot of kaiju to add, I kinda thought they were just going to add Biollante. Very curious to see their end result.
